DHL has further expanded its European overland transport network by launching a day-definite service between the Baltic states and other European countries. By doing so the company has laid the foundations in good time to profit from the EU expansion into the east.
DHL customers can now take advantage of the new service for shipments up to 2,500 kg to and from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. With the introduction of the three Baltic countries, DHL now offers this service across 21 countries in western, central, and eastern Europe. It offers transit times of three to five days plus daily line-haul departures.
The three Baltic countries offer considerable potential for future growth in the logistics market, as accession to the European Union, on May 1, 2004, has already contributed to the emergence of a stable and dynamic economic environment. With its strong market position in the Baltics, DHL will in future be able to better satisfy the growing customer demand for reliable import and export services.
Operations include the transport of general cargo to and from the Tallinn gateway, the capitol of Estonia. Tallinn serves as the entry point for the destination terminals of Riga (Latvia) and Vilnius (Lithuania). Therefor customers can benefit from the convenience of one of the largest self-operating networks on the continent.
Further customer benefits of the new service are:
-Reliable day-definite delivery
-Unified service and quality standards
-Money back guarantee
-Over 400 daily line-haul departures
-21 countries and 97 terminals connected by one network
-Included insurance up to 66,000 euros
-Customer links and individual tracking & tracing of shipments
